Frosty Friends & Aspen

First, I want to say that this is pretty much cased from Nicole Bailey. Thanks Nicole, this is a great card!!

This is a 6" x 6" card that uses the Aspen paper packet and the colors are Bamboo, Creme Brulee, Twilight and White Daisy.

The stamp set used is Frosty Friends. I stamped that in Black Staz-On ink, then colored it in with our ink pads using our Waterbrush. The "Wishing you a warm nose and toasty toes" phrase is also stamped in that Black Staz-On ink and, on that and on the snowmen, I used a sponge to edge Twilight ink around the edges.

The ribbon tied around the card is from our Creme Brulee Designer Ribbon Rounds Collection and the spiral clip and brads are from our Winter Cozy Mini-Medley Accents Collections.

Holiday Mail For Heroes

I also wanted to mention this great program that the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes are doing this Christmas by delivering holiday mail to our men and women in the military. If you have extra Christmas cards, please consider sending them on for the Holiday Mail for Heroes.

From their website:

Holiday Mail for Heroes

Holiday Mail for Heroes is a partnership between the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes to deliver one million holiday cards to American service members, veterans and their families in the United States and around the world.

Merry & Bright Cards

I just wanted to share the cards from the Merry & Bright Card Kit. I think these cards are so adorable!

Colors are Cranberry, New England Ivy, Olive, Sorbet and Colonial White. The kit comes with everything you need to create these cards and it doesn't take long at all to put the cards together. The results though look like you spent a lot of time working on them!

Friendship Flowers & Sweet Pea

Just wanted to share the card my Mom made for my cousin's new baby.

The flowers are from the Friendship Flowers set and are stamped in Sunkiss Yellow and the leaves are stamped in Key Lime. The papers are from our Sweet Pea paper packet and those colors are Baby Pink, Breeze, Key Lime and Lilac Mist. Mom then finished off the flowers with buttons from our Spring Craft Buttons collection.

It doesn't really look like it in the picture, but the phrase is actually on vellum. Mom printed it off the computer on to vellum, let it dry and attached it to her card.

She did a little decorating as well in the inside of the card and the "Congratulations" phrase is from the Gracious Greetings set.
